A fanfic based on the Max Brooks
novel World War Z
, focusing on stories from survivors in areas not mentioned much in the main story (for example, chapters focus on Mongolia and Brunei.)
War Wounds contains examples of the following tropes:
- After the End: Much like the original work, the stories come from survivors discussing their wartime experiences after the war itself has ended.
- Britain Is Only London: Averted. A chapter is set in Liverpool.
- Littlest Cancer Patient: According to Balducci, several of these were at the hospital in Pescara held under siege by zombies. They don't make it.
- Mercy Killing: The rationale used by several characters killing non-infected humans, arguing it would be better they are killed by humans than killed by zombies. With the Pescaran hospital, maybe justifiable. With the firebombing of Brunei, less so.
